Our shop closing today....

The shop closed today at 3 p.m., & it was our last day open as a brick & mortar shop.... it was more difficult than I realized to close the doors on the shop. I will miss getting up early in the morning and going in before anyone else- I usually would arrive around 7-8 am depending on the amount of things I needed to get done in the morning. The shop consumed a great deal of me, and time, but it was worth it, & I wish to thank all of those wonderful people who would come in just to see what was new, or ask advice, or buy that special item for their dollhouse or that wonderful chair or table for their special doll. It has been a priviledge & a blessing to work with such marvelous people in the dollhouse & doll venue.

I wish everyone to know that I will still be offering our products online at our website King William Miniatures, & also our Ebay store Pumpkin Hill Studios . Though our physical shop is closing, I will still be available in my studio at Pumpkin Hill, & I hope to get back to creating the miniatures & artist items again. Please be sure to watch this blog, as I will be posting pics of those items and new items & additions to our catalog. This is a new path, a new adventure, and another oppurtunity for Lisa to blaze another I'm looking forward to.
Wishing you dolly dreams and mini splendid things~~

Shop closing January 28th

Hi all. It is with great sadness and regret that we will be closing the shop end of King William Miniatures & Collectibles January 28th, 2011 at 3 pm. The business will not be closing completely, we will just be back to online service and you will see us at shows such as the Capitol Doll Club show on February 26th,

Our new hours until the shop closes its doors are 10 am to 3pm. Please be sure to call ahead as I sometimes do not open like today, because of illness & cannot make it in. You may always email me at or call our number at 2667676
We no longer accept credit cards or debit cards- only cash or check at this time.
On a personal note, here, my thoughts....
Though it is sad when a shop closes, I look at this as another new beginning in the business history of King William Miniatures, and hope to expand into other venues with this hobby, like my passion for the large scale furniture, Rement, and the artisan quality of miniatures in 1:12 scale. The shop has been extremely draining on both my personal time and ability to create the pieces I used to create, and my life took a direction I did not foresee when opening the business doors of the shop. So though I regret it, I am looking forward to some of the peace and tranquility to create and design, and work on a couple of projects I have on my list, while helping in my husbands' boiler company LeoPaul & Associates, with his invoicing and admin  work in the home office.Luckily, his business is taking off and I wish to help him achieve all the success he can and take his company to the next level.
Please be sure to check our our Ebay store Pumpkin Hill Studios, our main website King William Miniatures & also our Ebay Auctions
